The words of a hymn come to mind,
My life is hid with Christ on high.
I wonder what it really means. It sounds lofty, hard to believe as I slog through the daily frustrations and worries about tomorrow. I know it means security, protection, but yet I also know that bad things still happen.
Oswald Chambers said that the most dangerous and unsure thing is to try to live without God. Being hidden in Christ means that I am assured of security, even if I can’t always see and feel it. (Moreover especially when I can’t see and feel it).
We are preparing for some big changes around here, and it definitely makes things feel unstable. We’ve been in a holding pattern for so long that finally taking action on some important things feels positively overwhelming. The check list is never ending, the outcome isn’t guaranteed. There is more risk than we anticipated.
But I need to remind myself that my life is hid in Christ. He is the Lord of the outcome, even if it isn’t the outcome I’m looking for. He works all things together for good, even if I can’t see the good. (And may never see it on this side of heaven). These are truths I must remember as I navigate the waters of uncertainty.
